Cooks Note

When adding dry ingredients to quart jar, stack as listed from the top of the ingredient list into the bottom of the jar first. It’s a very tight fit, so you’ll want to tap the jar on the counter after each addition. When adding the brown sugar, press a whole into the center for the chips to fall into, it helps make a bit more room at the top.
